Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great weekend and are gearing up for another week! What do you do on Sundays? My Sundays are full of cleaning, laundry and cooking in preparation for the upcoming week. I find that with some extra preparation over the weekend, I eat much better throughout the week. The key is having what I need ready when I need it. Do you do any preparation on the weekends for your upcoming week? If so, maybe some of these recipes will be of inspiration to you!
Weekly Recipe Wrap up – 02/13/11
Breakfast Polenta: Two Ways – Need something new and different for your morning meal? Both of these recipes look delicious and out-of-the norm! Breakfast often gets boring for me, so I’m looking forward to something different!
Red Lentil Soup with Lemon – I’m on a lentil kick. I made Steamy Kitchen’s Indian Dal Nirvana last weekend and I think I might give this a try this weekend. It looks flavorful and filling – great for my weekday lunches!
Mixed Citrus Salad with Feta and Mint – The thing I love most about Smitten Kitchen’s website is the photography. It’s absolutely stunning – and it’s not just a few photos here and there. It seems like every post has at least 5 fantastic shots. I’m learning a lot from them! And, it’s citrus season, so what a perfect salad to make when the fruit is at it’s peak!
Vegan Caramel Apple Pie – I just came upon this blog earlier this week and this was the first recipe I stumbled on. It looks delicious. Perfect for a cold, snowy day!
Lentil and Root Vegetable Soup – Here I go again with the lentils. What a hearty and nourishing soup. Lentils provide so much nutrition and this is a great way to get extra veggies in your diet. Don’t forget to soak your lentils first!
Steamed Cauliflower with Curry Butter and Toasted Almonds – I have a head of cauliflower in my fridge right now and I was trying to figure out something different to do with it. I think I’ve found the answer!
